  1. For those of you who want the REAL Rogue One story -
  2. R2D2 and C3PO surely need no introduction. These are from the long defunct Grenadier Miniatures Star Wars line. I went on a kick a while back and bought up most of the line (which really has fantastic variety). of them I have completed a handful as a fun interlude to more serious painting. I completed this pair, who are arguably the most iconic duo in science fiction media, after learning the actor who portrayed R2D2 had passed away.
  3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frdj1zb9sMY Since no one else had posted it yet... {bounce bounce bounce} Is it December yet?
  4. Here was my next batch of completed figures for Imperial Assault. I watched Sorastro's Tutorial on You Tube, and tried to follow his steps. However, it is all with Reaper paints. Also, when I went back and watched episode IV, the officer uniforms seemed a sort of gray-green to me, so that's what I went for. I made the rank bars different for each. The highest rank is the red-based "Elite" deployment card. He's the one with gloves on and gray hair. You can see the eyes are a little wonky! Sort of too big. The sculpts had very tiny eyes, shallow, and the detail was o
  5. A friend and I made some Star Wars (Sun Battles) comedy videos on YouTube using action figures. I build the sets myself. If you have a good sense of humor check it out. Ben is a cranky old man who lives with Luke the man child in his desert home. Vader connects with this son once in a while to Ben's annoyance. The next door neighbor, Keith, is a slob and literally a pig. (Gamorrean) On the flip side, Han, Chewy, and Leia all live together on the Falcon which is broken down in a swamp. Leia is fed up with her husband and his freeloading friend. Han "skillfully" avoids that whole confrontatio
  6. Sooooo, as if I did not have enough to work on with CAV, Star Fleet Battles, Star Trek Attack Wing, Star Wars X-Wing, and now Star Wars Armada! THIS IS WHERE I DRAW THE LINE... I think. So this is the core set:: This is the Imperial and Rebel add on Fighter packs: And of course we could not do without the Scum and Villainy crew: And to flesh out the fleets of the Empire and Rebels: Might as well throw in some big guns too: The fleets overall: The next time the Star Fleet Battles group gets together, we will give Armada a go. I will keep you updated.
  7. So how will all you Sith be celebrating the 5th? No lava baths one hopes! I think I'll take a blaster and practice my 'precision' shooting so I can join the Stormtroopers!
  8. Eric Bauerfield(93), the voice actor behind Admiral Ackbar died in his home in Hollywood on sunday. He allso voiced Bib Fortuna. May The Force be with you, always.
  9. http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-35724496 I was just going to email his rep about coming to MarCon next year..
  10. When I first saw this sitting on a shelf at King Soopers, I laughed. I immediately envisioned opening the can to find a mess of nuts, bolts, gears, and computer chips floating in motor oil. What kind of soup was this supposed to BE? "Star Wars Soup?" "Droid Soup?" A nearby can had a picture of Yoda, which took my mind suddenly back to the first time I tried turtle soup, which is green and has a rich meaty flavor, which is not really a mental image that's psychologically compatible with a can with a picture of Yoda on it. A more careful reading of the can indicates that it's basically chic
  11. No word on what the actual scale on these is, but it looks like soon we will be able to buy a bucket of little white Stormtrooper army men and one black Darth Vader. http://toyland.gizmodo.com/a-death-star-filled-with-plastic-stormtroopers-is-a-bet-1741121325 There are pictures of them on a table (follow the links in the story) and they look roughly in the ballpark of gaming scale.
  12. So in my long and endless planning of a Star Wars campaign I thought of crime syndicates. I want a run in (or two, or a dozen) with the Hutt's and I would also like some with local gangs, space pirates and what not. I have been looking around for a while at different miniatures for such things. It's time to throw the net out to this fine Reaper Community So the campaign takes place WAY after the new Jedi Order. The Jedi are fully establish again like Episode on One/Two. (About 20 years BBY*). I have found two miniatures in the Reaper catalog that fit the bill. I like t
  13. Just posting this to show the asteroids I made a few years back, sculpted from plaster and worked with a knife and drill bits. I'm putting it here so I don't hijack the other thread. The point here is to show how the drill bits make great craters. These you see here are resin casts made from my own molds, but the masters are plaster. The craters come from drilling by hand, with finger-power only, into the plaster surface.
  14. Another quick star wars PC. This time a duros scoundrel, in bones. Body, stone. Head, alien commander. Hands guns space marine bits. Please C&C
  15. I took a trip out to visit a friend while she's in the States. One night we sat down and painted some Imperial Assault miniatures. She loves Star Wars, so I introduced her to the hobby. She was pretty discouraged because her hands were shaky, but I thought it was a great start, and I'd like to share them with you.

  17. OK everyone. Not sure how best to post WIP after the fact. So, I'm going to post a few pictures at a time. I was paired to paint for Arc724 in the Summer 2015 Exchange. This was my first time, and his. Here's the link to the Show Off. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63001-02782-warl-hellbore-assassin-exchange-mini-for-2015-summer/ And here is the Fiction: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63011-from-the-personal-holocron-of-master-bel’rheol-force-assassin/ Here are the starting supplies: A few angles of the mini. The base is a 30mm
  18. Well, everyone. Arc724 made the following comment in his guidelines for his exchange mini: "I'm starting a Star Wars RPG Campaign, so if you can paint me a Sith or Jedi, you'd have a new friend forever." Challenge Accepted... As soon as I saw this figure years ago I thought "He'd make a great Sith." Now I had the chance to prove it. I call him Bel'Rheol. That was a jumble of the letters in Hellbore (which is the only name on the blister card). He has a weird spiral hat, so I Ret-Conned that to make him a Twi'Lek. In reading on the Wookieepedia, I came across a Headmistress at a S
  19. Hey all! Here is just a super quick Y-Wing conversion (additional armor plating) and repaint. I've been having a ton of fun playing the X-Wing Miniatures game with my brothers and wanted to have my own unique Y-Wing to use. Thanks for looking!
  20. Well I'm glad that I stopped buying X-Wing ships, b/c Armada is stupidly fun. When it was first announced I told myself that I wasn't going to buy it. I'd play it, but only using my friend's set. Well after playing 2 games using the core set fleets, I'm made the decision to buy in. I'm not sure that I'll buy a ton of expansions, and I know that I'll probably only buy expansions for 1 faction, not both, but at the very least I want to have enough ships so that my friend and I can play a full-sized game on the big map (which requires 2 core sets). What really makes the game shine IMHO is the
  21. http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-29144135 Photographer Matthew Myatt was taking aerial photographs at Greenham Common, Berkshire, a former RAF airbase, to be used as publicity for a flying school. Once he returned home and was checking his photographs, he was stunned to recognize a full-size half-Millennium Falcon and an X-wing fighter in one of the shots. Who knew they still built these?
  22. The Sith Revolt He walked calmly into the dark chamber, the Emperor's Throne Room and saw his master, Lord Vader, standing before the throne deep in thought as he stared out at the star that his space station had just made into a super nova. Darth Cerrak quietly pulled the light saber from his belt and unleashed a powerful blast of the force at his master! Darth Vader was ready for the blast and had been expecting his apprentice to one day try to destroy him, he wouldn't be a Sith if that wasn't part of his personality and how Vader trained him. He easily deflected the blast with one o
  23. This is a diorama I created. Last year, I got to talk to Jeff Grace (he's responsible for a lot of great minis from Dark Sword, Privateer Press, Reaper and others). We talked a little bit about how easy it would be to make some of his Dark Sword minis into Star Wars characters, and how cool it would be if someone made a diorama of a dueling Jedi and Sith and entered it into the painting competition. Naturally, I agreed that such a thing should happen. I'm not totally sure that he meant it as a challenge. I think sometimes people get surprised when I run away with an idea like this.
  24. Battle of the Sith Diorama Project Figures: Zargun, Assassin from Guild of Harmony with Karick-Dar's right hand and Darth Vader from West End Games Star Wars Miniatures Since this is a Sci-fi entry and I'm going to go pretty in-depth with my work here, I decided that it needs its own WIP thread. First off is the theme for my little diorama, it is going to be Darth Vader vs his upstart apprentice (Darth Malice). Here are the primed figures. I found a window to the Emperor's Throne Room on the Deathstar and resized it to be the right size for this scale. After
